S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee (Yellow Track suit) has been spotted IN STOCK online by me and HAS been ordered!

Should be about a week 1/2 till it comes, then I WILL review it!
Waited a LOONG time for this.

Its one of my favorite Bruce lee costumes from what probably would have been one of his greatest films had he lived to complete it.
Well, its a NEW year.
Hopefully it will be a better year than Last year....

In unrelated news, Ronda Rousey tried to make her comback last night...and she got beat down again, this time even quicker against Amanda Nunez.

Im not gonna beat up on Ronda because I did like Ronda, but when she started talkin and mouthing off and got the big head, she needed to be shut up and Holly did that last year...
I thought she would have learned from that and worked on her fighting skills for the year she was gone...but no, she still came in with the same strategy and Amanda cleaned her clock in 48 seconds...which is usually around the record time that Ronda handled things...

I feel bad for her, but at the same time, Karma is a bitch.
I hope she gets back in there, and not quit over two losses, but....seeing how she took the first lost, and this one was kinda worse...I don't know if shes gonna continue on.

Like the internet is saying, 2016 took something else; Ronda's career.

Thank God that year is over Yet I know we have not even hit rock bottom for Worst years ever...

We have truly dark times ahead of us... lets cherish the good while we can.
Just when I thought 2016 was DONE, it pulls a sneak attack on us and takes away some last minute celebs, the recent being one that has somewhat effected me being a Star Wars fan.

OG Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher aka Princess Leia as been taken away from us...hopefully to be a resident in a much better and holier place.

Rest in peace, Princess.

Don't know how the new episodes is gonna be without you.......well, actually, I kinda do, thanks to Rogue One...  ; )

2016 needs to go! Now IM officially DONE with this year!
Seen Star Wars: Rogue One
Good ass Star Wars movie!!

No spoilers or anything but it was a good movie!
I think I liked it more than The Force Awakens, I THINK...I gotta see Rogue one again, though.

My fav SW film is still 'Empire' tho.

Rogue One has a Decent story and helped clear some plotholes from the OG SW epIV.
I also liked that the ending of the movie almost seamlessly led you right into the beginning of Star Wars Ep IV.

Great FX!! The fuckin CG was ON POINT! That Moff Tarkin/Peter Cushing digital CG was INCREDIBLE!!! Thats the kind of CG I like to see!

Cool characters though there isnt too much development with them.

Vader had a small amount of time in this film and I was okay with that because we got his story in the OG trilogy, and not only that, I like when the BIG BOSS chars get the brief but awesome  "in the shadows", type of scenes. They treated Vader in this like they treated The Emperor in the first two OG SW movies. And I was perfectly fine with that. My anticipation for him grew and at the end, my hunger was satisfied!!!

THAT last scene he was in was fuckin INCREDIBLE!!! Vader like we've never seen in the films!! That was a good ass payoff!!

Overall Good movie, recommend it! Probably gonna see it again.

Been a while, but Ub3 is back and with a new figure that I had been awaiting for a while now since the appearance of the promo photos.


The S.H. Figuarts

Super Saiyan Vegeta


'SUPER VEGETA' version




So i was waiting on this figure for a while since the promo pics were released because its basically 'Super Vegeta' and that was one of the most badass moments of the Vegeta Character. The figure is probably the best Vegeta figure we have right now, so lets look into him.




Appeal and Detail


Look wise, can't get too much better than what is seen right here. He looks just like the ascended super saiyan Vegeta, PERIOD.
Hair is bigger than the previous SH figuarts Super Saiyan Vegeta and the coloring and shading is excellent. The hair sculpt even has a few lines in it to define the hair much like the artwork in the show. The figure has the NEW articulation and configuration from SH figuarts thats been on previous figures. The color scheme on the figure is perfect I think. The saiyan armor id sculpted nicely and kind reminds me of the old 'Super Battle Collection Vol 7 Vegeta with the removable armor.
Skin tone of the face is very good. The others from the previous SS Vegeta may have either been too orange in the face or too pale in the face(premium edition). This figure has a perfect flesh tone paint.

He is about 6 inches to the top of his hair, so he of course fits in with the 6 inch scale figures that you have in your collection.

One problem I have is with the triceps. Its like Vegeta worked out and got toned and buffed but TOTALLY forgot about bicep and triceps day, Lol. Yea I mean the biceps and triceps are small compared to his deltoids and it makes the arm look kinda not proportionate in terms of muscle size. I MAY have to get a another one and put some epoxy on it.

Even in the pictures below from the anime, you can see his triceps and biceps and stuff are proportionate to the deltoids and the rest of his muscles... but not on this figure. atleast IMO. So arms need to be a slight bit buffer.

Despite this, the figure is AMAZING!! BEST Vegeta figure we have right now.












Articulation


Articulation is based in the new configuration of the sh figuarts so, its alittle different but Still the BEST. Trunks in Saiyan Armor Figuart as well.


  • Ball and hinged neck, --Now the new ball joint for the head connection on this figure is bigger than the previous Vegeta figures. SO that means if you were wanting to swap heads, it CANNOT BE DONE. The ball joint is too big to fit in the sockets of the other vegeta heads unless you dremmel the hole bigger but then you cant put it back on another vegeta figure. So unless you have spare Vegeta figuart head, please dont try it. I personally like the new bigger ball joint in the head because the small ones make it seem like its an eazy snap if done wrong.

  • Hinged Arms
  • "butterfly joints" in arm sockets
  • Ball jointed neck
  • Double jointed elbows and knees(knee sculpts look good!)
  • Swivel Biceps
  • Ball and hinged wrists
  • Diaphragm joint!
  • Ball jointed Waist
The waist/crotch joint system works kinda like the old DCUC(DC universe classics) waist joints, where they enable you to put the legs back and forth as well as side to side, but the sides dont go up too high of a range. The legs are actually pegged in the waist/crotch area. But pegs are small, so be careful with posing esecially if Stiff. (i know this from the Trunks figuart mishap I had.. :(
The legs no longer slide down like the old figuarts to have a wider range of movement.

  • Swivel upper thighs
  • Ball jointed ankles but I dont like them too much because they seem hard to pivot in certain poses.
  • Toe bend



Accessories



Vegeta comes with a decent amount of accessories and paired with the other accessories from previous Vegeta figures, you should have MORE than enough hands for ANY Vegeta figure you have if you have collected most or all of the Vegeta figuarts.

  • 3 interchangeable face plates ('Angry yelling', 'Angry Yelling while looking right', and my favorite the 'Smirking Vegeta') in addition to Neutral default face.
  • 3 pairs of hands( Blasting, clawing, 'Tyranno' hands(because no one made those fighting stance hands more than the Red tyranno Ranger in MMPR/Zyuranger), lol and an 'I am..." thumb hand.
  • 1 crossed arms attachment(which im SOO glad to have for Vegeta because that is mostly what he does.)









Comparisons


Here is the Original SH Figuarts Super Saiyan Vegeta next to the new Super Saiyan Vegeta


=




OVERALL Rating: 8.5/10





I APPROVE!!


Pros: Articulation, Sculpt, detail, appeal, accessories
Cons: Small triceps, ankle joints, a little QC issues(with mine) not major but still worth noting.
Stiff joints that could cause snaps. Be careful!






Pretty Good Vegeta figure!! BEST ONE so far!!

You can find it now online at Ebay and other sites that sell Figuart collectibles.
It will run the average Figuarts cost for DBZ figures which is around $50
But WELL worth it IMO.

Yeah. I just hope that rumor of there being no X-Men and Fantastic Four characters isn't true, because that would be a complete dick move if they did that.

On the positive side, I'm just happy that Mega Man X is gonna be playable. Oh joy.
